Marrowbone Marrowbone - The Secret of Marrowbone review by porky

Spoiler Alert

Comes across initially as a Childrens Adventure Movie like the Railway Children crossed with something JK Rowling Might Write ,but in reality ,once its all exposed for what it is ,its actually Much Darker and has a rather Sad Feel to it all .

Much more adult that I first imagined,I almost didnt rent it as it looked to be a bit Family orientated entertainment, but its not that at all.

Very Good, Quite Disturbing , Worth seeing more than the once .

A sweeping, haunting horror almost undone by the ending - The Secret of Marrowbone review by NP

Spoiler Alert

At first, I wasn’t at all sure about this. The orchestral swirls and rolling countryside seemed to be ushering in a bigger budget episode of ‘The Waltons’. It’s a slow burner for sure, the thin plot taking second place to mood and atmosphere, which director/writer Sergio G. Sánchez ensures is rich and haunting.

An independent venture, this boasts some excellent performances and never looks like it has skimped on its budget – in fact the locations and set design are reminiscent of a Guerro De Toro production: a haunted house straight out of a child’s nightmare.

The terrific cast includes the mighty Mia Goth, so good the following year in the ‘Suspiria’ remake; Anya Taylor-Joy, equally convincing in 2015’s ‘The Witch’; and Charlie Heaton, from ‘Stranger Things’. But it is George MacKay who really nails it, rising to the challenge of having the most interestingly written role.

Things become distinctly murky in the telling toward the finale, the effect of which doesn’t measure up to what has gone before it. A twist that doesn’t quite work. However, ultimately, this is a highly effective slice of period horror. My score is 7 out of 10.

The Waltons with scary dad - The Secret of Marrowbone review by AL

Spoiler Alert

Hmm... great idea, and it would have worked if they had skipped the schmaltz. It was a bit too nice. I think the writer started off with a decent ending (incorporating bits of other things) then working the plot backwards. The prologue was rushed, and was more like a preview of something that had happened in previous episodes of a television series, which may have been a better format for this story line.
